Although the women of the United States are confined within the narrow circle of domestic life, and their situation is, in some respects, one of extreme dependence, I have nowhere seen woman occupying a loftier position; and if I were asked... in which I have spoken of so many important things done by Americans, to what the singular prosperity and growing strength of that people ought mainly to be attributed, I should reply, To the superiority of their women.

An Example of Multinational Corporate Evil

You may have heard of Andre Geim, he won the Nobel Prize in physics for developing graphene, which is a form of carbon specially structured for nanotech applications. When asked why he never patented graphene, he told Nature News how it is:

We considered patenting; we prepared a patent and it was nearly filed. Then I had an interaction with a big, multinational electronics company. I approached a guy at a conference and said, "We've got this patent coming up, would you be interested in sponsoring it over the years?" It's quite expensive to keep a patent alive for 20 years. The guy told me, "We are looking at graphene, and it might have a future in the long term. If after ten years we find it's really as good as it promises, we will put a hundred patent lawyers on it to write a hundred patents a day, and you will spend the rest of your life, and the gross domestic product of your little island, suing us." That's a direct quote.

I considered this arrogant comment, and I realized how useful it was. There was no point in patenting graphene at that stage. You need to be specific: you need to have a specific application and an industrial partner. Unfortunately, in many countries, including this one, people think that applying for a patent is an achievement. In my case it would have been a waste of taxpayers' money.

It's so great we live a a free-market economy where inventors can enjoy the fruits of their labor. I mean, it's so great that we reward achievement in this country. You only need a really wealthy corporate patron to get ahead. However, note that they will never let you get too uppity. They will farm your mind, but they intend to reap the profits. They will not allow you to get big enough to compete with them, as I intend to prove in upcoming posts.

Wall Street and the Bolshevik Revolution: Chapter 1

I've decided to start book-blogging a new book because I believe it's that important. Ya'll be getting a notebook ready because you need to write this stuff down. I want you to fully understand what is going on and to do that, you have to go back to the source of the tainted fountain.

Our Next Biggest Problem, Our Elected Officials are Stupid

To follow up on the previous post, I would like to link to this World Net Daily article on a quiz that was given to over 2,000 participants. Of those participants, 164 said that they had held elected office of some form. Now they may have been dogcatchers and councilmen, but overall, they scored less than the general population. Take a look at the report here.
Twenty percent of the officials, reports Richard Brake in AOL News, thought that the ElectoralCollege was a school for "training those aspiring for higher political office."
"The fact that our elected representatives know even less about America's history and institutions than the typical citizen (who doesn't know much either) is troubling indeed," writes Brake, who is co-chairman of the Intercollegiate Studies Institute's National Civic Literacy Board, "but perhaps helps explain the lack of constitutional discipline often displayed by our political class at every level of our system.
The average overall score was 49% and for those who had held elected office it was 44%. Having taken the quiz myself, I can't possibly convey how sorry a performance this is. Halfway through the thing, I almost thought it was a joke because the questions were that easy. However, toward the end it got a little more sticky. I ended up scoring an 88%, mostly because I over-thought a few of those at the end.

Take the exam yourself and see if you, too, are smarter than a politician!

Our Biggest Problem: Truth Rejection Rampant

Rev. Chuck Baldwin, a man so patriotic that he has earned the Southern Poverty Law Center's number 1 spot on their enemies list, recently wrote a column that really struck a chord with me. Before I got involved in researching deep politics, I was really, really into investigating where the church got off the rails. It started over 150 years ago with those dirty, rotten Unitarians, but that's another post.

In his column, Pastor Baldwin points out how most of our nation's pastors are more afraid of the IRS than the holy and righteous God. He also points out how the church's tax-exempt status has been used to silence activism and dissent on the part of churches. Unless, of course, you belong to a church that is promoting a worldview that will subvert Western Civ. Baldwin points out the lack of courage to stand for truth is our ultimate undoing. He poses the question, where did it all start?
The rejection of truth seems ubiquitous in America today. When did it start? Maybe when Abraham Lincoln turned the Constitution on its head and--at bayonet point--turned republicanism into nationalism; maybe when Woodrow Wilson rejected thousands of years of human history and turned America’s sound money system over to the corrupt and illegitimate Federal Reserve; maybe when Wilson created the monstrous Internal Revenue Service; maybe when the 17th Amendment was adopted; maybe when the American media convinced people that Lee Harvey Oswald acted alone in the assassination of President John F. Kennedy; maybe when the American people (including the vast majority of pastors and Christians) turned their backs (and their hearts) to the Branch Davidians, who were murdered by federal agents outside Waco, Texas; maybe when so-called “conservative” Senate Republicans deliberately chose to cover up President Bill Clinton’s criminal conduct; maybe when the powers that be began demonizing anyone who dared to question the “official” story regarding the events on 9/11/01; maybe when a vast majority of Christians and conservatives blindly followed and actively supported the unconstitutional, un-American policies of President George W. Bush. They supported Bush when he threw off Western Civilization’s time-tested Just War doctrine (and replaced it with an unconscionable Preemptive War policy), and, again, when he officially began turning America into a police state by creating the Department of Homeland Security, implementing the Military Commissions Act, introducing the Patriot Act, and dismantling Habeus Corpus and Posse Comitatus. Whenever it started, the sad reality is, America has largely become a nation of truth-rejecters.

The key verse that summarizes this theme is given:

There is a passage of Scripture that I simply must interject here: “Because they received not the love of the truth . . . God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie.” (II Thess. 2:10,11 KJV)
This is one of God’s universal principles: when people deliberately reject truth, God will allow them to believe lies, which always leads to ultimate destruction. I submit that is exactly where America is today. As a nation, we have rejected truth, and God is giving us over to deceit and falsehood. And what is interesting to me is the way in which many unbelievers seem to have a thirst for truth that far surpasses that of many professing Christians. This leads to an amazing paradox.
Think of it: when God is moving within a nation with His plan of truth and justice (which He is always doing), then it stands to reason that the evil one is, likewise, resisting and countering God’s plan through deceit and falsehood. This means that those unbelievers who seek truth are allying themselves with God (maybe even unwittingly), while those professing Christians who have rejected truth are allying themselves against God (again, maybe even unwittingly). Remember, God called the heathen king, Cyrus, “my shepherd.” (Isa. 44:28) But one thing is constant: truth is like a magnet: one is always being pulled toward it or away from it, depending upon the polarity of one’s heart and mind. People who embrace truth tend to embrace it further, while people who reject truth tend to be continually hardened against it.
 It does seem like a motley crue of characters that are being drawn into the freedom movement. You'll find an odd assortment of athiests, hard-core Christians, and all sorts in between pointing out that many things are not right in our country and world. The more research we all do, the more details we're finding out, such as names, hidden agendas revealed through foundation minutes, money trails, and other evidence that demands an accounting. Of course the absolute Truth of the Word is going to be mocked in this hell-bound world, but one would hope that we can "reason together" on the tangible facts that available to us. They are a witness to the fact that there are indeed evil forces working in our world. Just take a gander at what the elite bigwigs in our multinational corporations, political world, and media do for kicks out in California:

What? You mean you don't go camping once a year to burn a body in effigy in front of a forty foot owl idol? It's just good ol' boys havin' some fun! Psst... want their names? click here.  I'll post on this later - I promise.

So if you ever thought our leaders who always seem to be able to throw out the name of The Way, The Truth and the Life when running for office actually believe what they say..I say to you hah! Rev. Baldwin sums it all up:
Look around you: our society is breaking apart due to a lack of appreciation for truth. Small businesses are being put out of business due to a lack of truth. Families are being torn apart due to a lack of truth. Churches are filled with bitterness, carnality, envy, deceit, duplicity, false accusation, greed, and cowardice due to a lack of truth. Our political institutions mock the principles of decency and honor due to a lack of truth. The national media loves to distort truth; the federal judiciary loves to twist truth; and there is no such thing as truth to Big Business--only bottom line profits.

And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.  -John 8:32

Note #1: Tyranny and lies go together.
Note #2: We've been living under a soft tyranny for at least 97 years.
Note #3: During that time, everything the government has told us is a lie. (including war justification, cigarettes are safe, the food pyramid, etc.)

As a Christian, uncovering lies and pointing out the truth is a form of witnessing. If you claim the Absolute Truth of God's Word, but have not the courage to stand up and call a lie a lie and injustice for what it is, what does that say about your integrity to an unbelieving world? Christians should be taking the lead in exposing the evil in our world, not sticking their heads in the sand.

Dick Lugar Has a lot of Friends

I saw on the headlines at Hot Air that the new Tea Party congressmen are unimpressed with Senator Dick Lugar. From the linked CNN story,

Lugar and a pair of staffers discussed a range of federal issues, including the role of earmarks and the Federal Reserve. Fettig and Boyer objected to Lugar's sponsorship of the DREAM Act, his support for the ratification of the START nuclear arms treaty during the lame-duck session of Congress, and his votes to confirm Supreme Court Justices Sonia Sotomayor and Elena Kagan.

So the Tea Party is looking to primary this RINO. Continues the article:
Hoosiers for Conservative Senate is convening a "Road To Retirement" event in Indianapolis on Jan. 22 in Indianapolis, where organizers hope that an array of Tea Party groups can unite around one Republican candidate to challenge Lugar in the May 2012 primary.
I've noticed that Dick Lugar comes up a lot in my searching and piddling with who is connected to whom. I've come to the conclusion that Dick Lugar has got him a whole lot of powerful friends.  You know the map is coming....
What you are seeing is a government/corporatist overlap that illustrates the fascist control of these elites over the country. As we saw briefly in my last post, the revolving door between government and the biggest corporations never stops spinning. For added measure, just about everyone of these characters gets to be an trustee, provost, or some other position in our colleges and universities. Gotta make sure the next generation of corporate fodder has their minds right, you know! Notice that while Dick has slightly more "republican" support, he's pretty much equally supported by both parties. You can't have a solution until you understand the problem. Dick Lugar is an example of the problem.

John Wheeler III - What happened?

Here's the run-down on Mr. Wheeler:
  • Veitnam Veteran, West Point Grad
  • Worked under Reagan to get the Vietnam Veterans Leadership Program
  • Worked under Bush Sr. creating the Earth Conservation Corps for poor kids
  • authored 1st Biological and Chemical Joint Munitions Effectiveness Manual
  • on the Red Integrated Strategic Operational Plan Team to test the Single Integrated Operational Plan
  • Chairman of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Fund
  • Chairman and CEO of M.A.D.D.
  • Special Counsel to the Chairman and CEO for the turnaround of Macy's
  • helped launch the Jed Foundation, Support our Aging Religious, and helping deaf children get cochlear implants 
  • Has a law degree from Yale 1975
  • defense contractor and trustee of the Mitre Corporation
  • possessed the highest level of security clearences
  • was found wandering around and "out of it" two days before his body was found in a landfill.
Bio info from Cryptogon, which has been blocked in the UK, by the way. The Mitre Corporation, which has contracts with the Department of Defense, the Department of Homeland Security, the IRS, and the FAA.

From the WSJ
Wheeler’s house in New Castle was dark Monday night and no one answered the door. Yellow police evidence tape was stretched across two wooden chairs in the kitchen, where several wooden floorboards were missing.”

So here's what I did for the MITRE Corporation, who possesses the very first .org domain name, given in 1985.


So you've got to wonder what was he working on and/or who did he upset? Unlike many people, I won't speculate, because I don't have enough information to form an opinion. We only have just a few of the puzzle pieces. Is there anyone who is a military-industrial complex buff who has a better clue as to what happened with poor Mr. Wheeler?

Government Pays - Mapping Mania

For your consideration are the Database maps for three people who worked in the federal government. Two of whom you've probably never heard of. As you look at these maps, check out that all of them are on the board (or have been) of at least one Fortune 500 company, are involved in at least one college or university as a trustee, president or provost, and are involved in an assortment of think tanks and NGOs. I just randomly selected these individuals, but could have chosen hundreds more just like them. I think most of us are truly ignorant of the tremendous overlap between academia, corporations, and government, with these "nonpartisan, nonprofit" foundations hooking it all together.

Well, you all know William Daley, scion of Chicago crookdom:
A link to explore

Here is the map for John Brademas, Congressman from Indiana and assistant to Adlai Stevenson:
A link to explore

Finally, we have Frank Zarb, the Energy Czar from the '70s:
Here's the link

I wish the things would format better, but you get the idea. It would be cool if every "insider" got this treatment, because like I said, no one really has a clue to the extent of how much corporate board members and government officials overlap, not to mention the controlling hand of the ever-present NGOs making sure Leviathan stays healthy.

Growing Up 1870s: A Young Colonel House

You may be familiar with Colonel Edward M. House as the power behind the throne in the Wilson administration. Or you may know him from his collectivist novel, Philip Dru, Administrator. But before all that he was a child who grew up in post Civil War Texas. From The Underground History of American Education, comes the following excerpts:

In his memoirs, The Intimate Papers of Colonel House, we get a glimpse of elite American schooling in the 1870s. House’s early years were school-free. He grew up after the Civil War, near Houston, Texas:

My brother James, six years older than I, was the leader....We all had guns and pistols... there were no childish games excepting those connected with war. [House was nine at the time.] In the evening around the fireside there were told tales of daring deeds that we strove to emulate.... I cannot remember the time when I began to ride and to shoot.... I had many narrow escapes. Twice I came near killing one of my playmates in the reckless use of firearms. They were our toys and death our playmate.
And today the authorities freak out when a kid brings GI Joe's rifle to school with him.

At the age of fourteen House was sent to school in Virginia. The cruelty of the other boys made an indelible impression on his character, as you can sift from this account:
I made up my mind at the second attempt to haze me that I would not permit it. I not only had a pistol but a large knife, and with these I held the larger, rougher boys at bay. There was no limit to the lengths they would go in hazing those who would allow it. One form I recall was that of going through the pretense of hanging. They would tie a boy’s hands behind him and string him up by the neck over a limb until he grew purple in the face. None of it, however, fell to me. What was done to those who permitted it is almost beyond belief.
You think bullying is rough today? It just goes to show what happens when kids are segregated from their families, the worst in human traits are cultivated. 

At the Hopkins Grammar School in New Haven at the age of seventeen, during the Hayes-Tilden campaign of 1876, House began to "hang around" political offices instead of "attending to studies." He came to be recognized and was given small privileges. When the election had to be ultimately settled by an Electoral Commission he was allowed to "slip in and out of hearings at will." House again:
All this was educational in its way, though not the education I was placed in Hopkins Grammar School to get, and it is no wonder that I lagged at the end of my class. I had no interest in desk tasks, but I read much and was learning in a larger and more interesting school.
House’s story was written over and over in the short, glorious history of American education before schooling took over. Young Americans were allowed close to the mechanism of things. This rough and tumble practice kept social class elastic and American achievement in every practical field superb.
 True education is one instigated by the individual, not by an outside influence. When your child, or yourself, really become interested in something you don't need to be spoonfed to acquire the information you desire- you seek it out. The people at the very top of designing our education system know this as well as anyone; they're not stupid, as Charlotte Iserbyt has pointed out in her book, Deliberate Dumbing Down of America, isolating children from their families and communities has been by design. I highly suggest everyone check out her latest column found here.

A highlight :

Important and revealing excerpts from Conclusions and Recommendations for the Social Studies (a study funded by the Rockefeller Foundation in 1934 on how to socialize the United States through central planning. Remember that the next time some "conservative" tells you what great entrepreneurs the Rockefellers were.)
“The Commission was also driven to this broader conception of its task by the obvious fact that American civilization, in common with Western civilization, is passing through one of the great critical ages of history, is modifying its traditional faith in economic individualism [free enterprise], and is embarking upon vast experiments in social planning and control which call for large-scale cooperation on the part of the people…” (pp. 1-2)
“. . . Cumulative evidence supports the conclusion that in the United States and in other countries the age of ‘laissez faire’ in economy and government is closing and that a new age of collectivism is emerging.” (p. 16)

According to Charlotte, the central planners have made the public schools so awful that parents will clamor for school choice, which will be the Trojan Horse to implement a total Federalized curriculum that will administer attitudinal tests that will see if your kid has their "mind right'. They're going to use charter schools through corporate management to get these goals implemented. So if you're thinking yay! charter schools, investigate a little deeper. As always, homeschoolers should never, ever take any money or free computers/curriculum from the feds, as that's how they subvert a good thing.

This massive shift in education  is going under the name Reinventing Schools Coalition and will feature Outcome Based Education that conservatives claim to despise, yet no opposition from the mainline conservative groups. This is a doing away completely of academics and using Skinnerian techniques, from the man who bragged he could make a pigeon an honor roll student using nothing but conditioning aka Pavlov's dog, to get people's minds right. Check out her essay, The Death of Free Will which says it better than I could.

So we go from Colonel House who had all the benefits of America as free as she'd ever been, who decided to become a collectivist along the way, bringing us to a point where an unsupervised child is tantamount to child abuse. I wonder how he'd feel seeing what his legacy of central planning has wrought on the young people of America? Progressives such as he did not have the same heart as the Founders who always seemed to have their "posterity" on the mind. Even more disturbing is what a large percentage of parents don't care enough about their own kids living in their home currently to pass on values, much less thinking of their great-grandchildren. If more Christians would read and apply Pastor Baucham's book Family Driven Faith to their lives, we'd have a different country in short order.
